If you have a tooth that is damaged or has a severe level of decay, you may need a tooth extraction. At Green Tree Dental, we always do our best to protect your natural teeth and preserve our patient’s smiles, but sometimes an extraction may be the best option for your oral health. If you think you may need a tooth removed, call us today to schedule a consultation at Green Tree Dental. We will happily evaluate the affected tooth and your overall dental health to determine the best treatment option for you and your smile.

Simple Tooth Removal

If you have a wisdom tooth that is fully erupted, or a tooth that is completely visible and relatively damage free that needs to be removed, then a simple extraction may be the recommended course of treatment. For a simple extraction, the affected tooth is gently loosened using an elevator, and then removed using a forceps.

Surgical Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions in Chicago

Is the affected tooth severely damaged or decayed? Or do you need a wisdom tooth removed that is not fully erupted? Then a surgical extraction may be necessary. For surgical tooth removal, an incision will need to be made to fully access the tooth. Depending on the affected tooth, it may then need to be split into several smaller pieces to be removed.

Following an extraction, we will typically recommend a dental restoration treatment, including a dental bridge, partial dentures, or an implant. If you neglect to restore your missing teeth, that can lead to additional negative consequences to your health and the appearance and function of your smile.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, or the third molars, are frequently recommended for extraction. If you don’t know if a wisdom tooth extraction is right for you, be sure to schedule a consultation with our team. We’ll be happy to let you know.
